Todd Muller AWOL on Twitter

Todd Muller rolled Simon Bridges for leadership of the National Party on 22 May 2020.

Since then, he has posted exactly once on Twitter.

Since 22 May 2020

Donald Trump has tweeted too many times to count without some sort of web scraper
Pope Francis has tweeted 37 times
Jacinda Ardern has tweeted 0 times (ok, Jacinda is beating Todd for being worst at twitter)
Judith Collins has tweeted 63 times
Simon Bridges has tweeted 3 times (and from 1 - 21 May, tweeted 47 times).

Heather du Plessis-Allan told us on Friday (during her evening ZB show) that he had also declined interviews so he could get home for the weekend. Considering that Jacinda Ardern only works Monday-Thursday, you'd think that Muller would leap at the chance of dominating the airwaves Friday-Sunday.

Started with a bang and then fizzed.

Note: I take no responsibility for the numbers posted above, they could be out by 1 or 2, except for Todd Muller's and Jacinda Ardern's numbers, which were very easy to count given there were so few tweets.

Sine dominico non possumus

This post was inspired by posts on TBR and A Servant's Thoughts on male vs female church attendance. ... "We Cannot Live without Sunday," takes us back to the year 304, when Emperor Diocletian prohibited Christians, under pain of death , to possess the Scriptures, to meet on Sunday to celebrate the Eucharist and to build premises for their assemblies. In Abitene, a small village in what today is Tunis, 49 Christians , meeting in the home of Octavius Felix, were taken by surprise on a Sunday while celebrating the Eucharist, defying the imperial prohibitions. Arrested , they were taken to Carthage to be interrogated by the proconsul Anulinus. Significant, in particular, was the response given to the proconsul by Emeritus, after being asked why he had violated the emperor's order. He said: "Sine dominico non possumus," we cannot live without meeting on Sunday to celebrate the Eucharist. We would not have the strength to face the daily difficulties and not

People have got to eat. To eat they either have to grow food or do something useful which they can exchange for food. Squid is good food so some people go and catch squid and exchange it for the things they need to survive and prosper in this sorry world. Some people think catching squid is bad because it impacts on the sealions or something and therefore the Government shouldn't let people catch squid. The people who think other people shouldn't catch squid are very often people who are prospering, they are often employed in secure jobs and paid from taxes extracted from the people who do useful things, things like catching squid funnily enough. Squid that can be consumed in fancy eateries where University lecturers can dine upon dishes like calamari green salad and seafood chowder while lamenting with their colleagues how "greedy humans" are raping the planet. And killing the sea lions and polar bears in order to "line their pockets". Really of

The University College London Union will probably never see any irony in this. The president of a London university atheist society has resigned over a row about an image of the Prophet Muhammad. The society at University College London (UCL) published an image on its Facebook page showing "Jesus and Mo" having a drink at a bar. The atheist group was asked by the UCL union to remove it, but refused and started a petition defending its freedom of expression. A student Muslim group began a counter-petition asking for its removal. The cartoon in question of course is designed to be offensive to Christians as well as Muslims. "The society was asked to remove the image because UCLU aims to foster good relations between different groups of students and create a safe environment where all students can benefit from societies regardless of their religious or other beliefs."
